Well here we are again. Another week and another blog!
This week's episode starts with Vicki and her family taking a Duffy cruise around the Newport Harbor. I love doing this! Micah and I have several friends with Duffy's, and it's a great way to spend a day. It reminds me how fortunate we are to live here and be able to do this year round! I think everyone can tell by this point that Vicki and Don have completely different interests. It's sad to me, but I know there is a huge history of things that have gotten them here and they are on different pages. It is hard to continue in a relationship with someone when you are taking a different path than they are.
Next we see Gretchen planning her parents renewal of vows! This was so sweet to watch, and I can't believe all the time and effort Gretchen and Slade both spent on making everything authentic and special! Gretchen has a great relationship with her parents, and I completely relate to that. I love Paso Robles, and what better place to renew vows than a romantic winery!
Now we get to travel to Spain with Tamra and Eddie. What an experience! I have not been there yet, but it's definitely on my bucket list of places to go. Eddie and I are a lot alike in that we could be happy traveling all the time, where Micah and Tamra are more similar in that they like to stay home. It's nice Eddie encourages her to try new things and new adventures! I do that with Micah as well. It's great balancing each other out. Leaving your kids for more than a few days is tough for moms but Tamra deserved a fun, romantic trip! She's a great mom and has been through a lot. You could see watching their trip how happy they are. And the sights in Spain were breathtaking!
And saving the best for last, my surgery! I had my breasts done back when I was 21 and modeling a lot and wanted to enhance my look. Now I was getting them redone because the left one had broken away from the muscle and was becoming a health issue, and I have had them in 19 years so it was time! It was not me wanting to just pump up by boobs after babies.
We love you!!!! I think you are the best OC Housewife. U r down to earth say it how it is but in a nice way. You compliment everyone and you are a compliment to the show. Also you are leader not a follower. Alexis is a nice person but I think Gretchen is changing her or it could be the show who knows. Do us your fans a favor though and stay you and don't change like Gretchen did. However I will say I had seen some of the old Gretchen come through for what she did for her parents. So there might be hope yet. Keep up the positive that express and show on the episodes.
YOU ROCK GIRL! Oh and your husband is so sweet and understanding. So are you, but we all wish to have a man like yours and a relationship like yours. He and you are so supportive of eachother.
You are amazing! Thank you for sharing your personal experience with depression. Your story will help many moms. Alexis is not a good person despite talking about the Bible...stay away from her!
Peggy Respect you so much for not getting the enormus implants because I think they look so stupid. What you did looks very natural thank god!! I def- think Alexis is very jealous of you!! and by the way- her implants are a joke!!! It is sad how Alexis has turned on you, I guess she never was a true friend to began with!!! and I love a girl who likes guns!!!! Rock on chick!!!!
Peggy, I like you. I'm not exactly sure what transpired between you and Alexis but for now, I'm rolling with Team Peggy.
I don't know. I get a not very warm and fuzzy vibe from you. Your comments right out of the gate on Alexis' marriage and your spot on WWH...I don't know.
You are quickly becoming one of my favorite housewives. I feel like you have been very honest about your life the ups and the downs(where Alexis acts like she and her family are just perfect.pssst we know that is NOT true). I can seee that Alexis is probably not so happy at home that is why she is so jealous of the other girls and tries to tear them down to make herself look better. The only thing that bugs me with you is all the material things and how most of all the stuff is stupid. Spend much less than you make and you will always have money. Me and my husband are very well off and alot of that is because I don't get Bentlys as "push presents" and huge diamond earring s for my boob job. I am super sexy and confidant without all that crap. And we arent in forclosure. Be honest with yourself and quit spending like an idiot. That was a gift from me to you :)) love
I really like you. You seem very down to earth and candid. I thought it was very real for you to comment on feeling like you were doing something selfish knowing that the surgery was a luxury and the possibility of leaving two kids behind. I found that comment refreshing because it was all mommy guilt! Something I can definitely identify with. I also suffered with PPD and it is a daily struggle. Once you are receptive to it once, it can come back in different forms no matter how old your kids are. Good luck with everything! You seem like you have a beautiful family, inside and out!
Peggy, I really like you. I think you are a wonderful Mother and Wife. I too have struggled with depression and I like that you tell your story. I think you are a very pretty woman and you have alot of class.
Go Peggy Go Peggy. There is a God. Finally a "lady with class".... You are the best thing to happen to this show in a very long time. You are yourself and don't try to play "one up" like someone else we know...You are so real... Go Team Peggy
As a viewer, I didn't feel Alexis was knocking you at all. I don't know her personally so I could be very wrong. I thought she was kidding that you didn't go as big as she would go. Either way, I think it's all about how you feel you look. If you are happy, and obviously you are, than that is all that really matters. As for Alexis changing her attitude, well, I believe it's called, swelling head syndrome. LOL! Don't let television go to your head and you'll be fine. lol
LOve love love you!!! you are so positive, and i love your astrology comments, because I am a huge believer as well. It;s nice to see a new housewife want to blend in, and not speak poorly of one another. Kudos to you!!
You are my new favorite, I have watched the show since the very first episode. Lauri will always be my all time favorite but you are my current cast favorite. I think it is great you keep it neutral, please stay away from Alexis, she is awful and will only hurt you in the end.
Peggy, out of all the OC housewives I would most like to hang out with you. You seem very down to earth & casual, more like a REAL housewife than the others. You seem honest and not uppity about your life. No ones life is perfect. I like that even when you have 'bad' things to say about others or certain situations, you don't dwell on it & actually present your case in a classy, matter of fact way- instead of bitching and having a whiny attitude. It's refreshing. Keep it up.
You are CLASSY! I love that your blog is not trashing the other housewives every week. You are such a positive addition to the show. I did think it was suspect how Alexis kept pushing her own plastic surgery. I totally forgot she works for him! It's all coming together. Your doctor seemed awesome and I love that they let Micah come in and check the sizes! So awesome.
You seem like a nice person - please don't follow in the catty and fame-hungry footsteps of your fellow castmates. Stay grounded and true to yourself.
